Description

Prosciutto Wrapped Asparagus Stuffed Chicken is a perfect appetizer or main dish that looks and tastes spectacular but it’s also healthy and low-carb. Made with only a few ingredients, it can be made in the oven or an air fryer.


Ingredients

Scale

6 thin sliced chicken breast fillets

6 slices of prosciutto

24 asparagus stalks, woody ends snipped

1 clove garlic, minced or crushed

2 tbsp butter or ghee

salt and pepper to taste


Instructions

Oven method:

  1. Preheat oven to 410 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, add minced garlic and cook for a minute until fragrant.
  3. Lay the thin sliced chicken breasts flat, sprinkle with salt and pepper and brush with melted butter with garlic using a pastry brush (on one side only). Don’t use up all the butter.
  4. Place 4 asparagus stalks on each chicken breast and roll the chicken around asparagus tightly. Asparagus ends should be sticking out on both sides.
  5. Season the rolled up chicken with a little more black pepper.
  6. Lay a prosciutto slice flat on a plate or cutting board, place the rolled up chicken with asparagus on one end and wrap in prosciutto. Proceed with the remaining chicken, one at a time.
  7. Spray a baking pan with oil lightly and place all 6 chicken “rolls” on the pan. Brush the wrapped chicken and asparagus with remaining garlic butter.
  8. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until asparagus looks slightly roasted and prosciutto is browned slightly.

Air Fryer method

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees Fahrenheit (3-5 minutes)
  2. Follow steps 2-6 in the oven method above.
  3. Brush the wrapped chicken with remaining garlic butter.
  4. Open the air fryer and spray the basket with a little oil.
  5. Place the chicken in the basket and set for 5 minutes. Open the air fryer at the 5-minute mark, check for “doneness” and give the chicken a shake. Cook 2-3 minutes more or longer until it looks roasted.
